99.5 mc FM Program Folio, vol. 2, no. 7, April 3-16 



SINCE YOU CAN LISTEN TO RADIO AND TV FREE, 
WITHOUT budging from your living room, twisting programs on 
and off with the flick of a dial, this means a huge audience but also 
a fluid and slack one. It places a premium on the slick and the quick, 
the noisy, the flashy, and ephemeral. It means pampering the audi- 
ence, treating it as one treats a child whose attention span is short, 
whose interests are sensuous and surfacy, and whose fancy is a 
wandering one. Perhaps nine-tenths of the brains and energy in radio 
and TV are directed toward finding something gaudy to catch the 
attention, something wry to evoke laughter, something new and 
ingenious to tickle the fancy. This makes for a somewhat bizarre 
sprightliness and a sense of alertness and tension, but not for substance 
and emotional depth. . . . 

IN THE WORLD OF BOOKS A NUMBER OF AUDIENCE 
TASTE levels are given a chance to operate, with none shut out, 
whether it be symbolist poetry or the dregs of the newsstand pulps. 
Until radio and TV find some means for providing a comparable set 
of choices for varying audience levels, with no significant level shut 
out, there can be little valid talk of a cultural democracy of audience 
choice. 

a quotation from Max Lemer's "America 
as a Civilization" (Simon & Schuster, 1957). 



The staff of WBAl humbly submits this folio as a partial 
fulfillment of Mr. Lemer's ideal. We ask all of our listeners 
to renew their subscriptions at the due date and to contribute 
whatever and whenever possible to continue our experiment 
in providing material for the "cultural democracy of audi- 
ence choice."

THE NEW TRANSMITTER 

At long last WBAI's old transmitter located at 6ist St. and Fifth Ave. — 
battered by flood and fire, disadvantageous^ positioned for reception in 
many parts of our listening area, and occasionally prone to cease operating 
during critical broadcast hours — has been retired. Replacing it, 650 feet 
above average terrain, atop 10 E. 40th St., is a new three-section antenna, 
powered by a new RCA transmitter. We now hope to be able to broadcast 
our 17-hour day at full power, without the constant worry of a breakdown. 

Calls and postcards from listeners have already confirmed the fine quality 
of the new signal. Many of those who had previously only heard about 
WBAI's programming are now actually hearing it. It is imperative, to 
insure maximum utilization of the new transmitter and antenna, for us to 
know how and where the improved signal is being received, and we urge 
all listeners who hear a difference to send a card specifying exact location 
and comments about quality and relative strength. Our studio address, of 
course, remains the same — WBAI, 30 E. 39th St., New York 16, N. Y.
